The grapes for this vintage come from our 3 distinct blocks of Pinot Noir on our home vineyard site on the Cawston Bench. We use all of the 25 year old Pommard clone block, our 12 year old block of Dijon clones 113 and 115, and our youngest block of clones 828 and 667 to produce this wine. Each clone brings certain characteristics to increase complexity. The grapes were hand harvested and then gently destemmed and lightly crushed into half ton open top fermenters where they were hand punched 3 times per day until completion of fermentation. The wine was then pressed straight to new and one year old French barrels. The wine was then aged carefully for 16 months before racking and bottling (unfiltered). No fining was used. Minimal intervention is the key to the development of this wine.
